Completed

Primary Scientists: 

The project synthesized tribal climate adaptation needs assessments, workshop reports, and adaptation plans in Alaska to document barriers to climate adaptation planning, understand the current level of support for climate adaptation planning, examine the extent that climate science and traditional knowledge are being used in tribal climate adaptation plans, and identify climate science needs related to climate adaptation planning among Alaska Native tribes. This work was designed to inform the recently hired BIA tribal climate science liaison for Alaska.
